Providing cutting-edge solutions that meet the highest security and performance standards has been at the core of Progress Telerik business. To continue leading the market with a modern, secure, and compliant developers’ toolset, our .NET products will no longer support older .NET and .NET Framework versions.

Starting with our upcoming releases, our .NET-based products will exclusively support .NET framework versions 4.6.2 and above and .NET versions 6.0 and above. Q1 2024 was the last release supporting older framework versions and we committed to provide you with one full year of outstanding support service for this release.

Multiple Document Processing Libraries (DPL) Improvements

PDF Processing: Embedding File Streams: With the 2024 Q1 the PDF Processing allows embedding file streams into documents. Therefore, the content of the referenced files is embedded directly within the body of the PDF file. See the PDF Processing documentation: Embedded File Streams.

PDF Processing: Support for Embedding ZUGFeRD Invoices: Another PDF Processing enhancement is the support for adding embedded ZUGFeRD invoices into documents. This invoice consists of two formats – PDF and XML and it is a hybrid file, which has a visual component with the PDF and a data-based offshoot for further, automated processing with the XML. See the Document Processing PDF Processing docs: EmbeddedFilesCollection.

Zip Library: Strong AES Encryption Algorithm: We’ve introduced a new encryption algorithm in the Zip Library – AES encryption. It is best suited to secure sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, passwords, and personal data. You can read and extract AES-protected archives with ease.
